Memories of Jack Pickup : flying doctor of British Columbia is a story of Dr. Pickup's contributions to his community, his regional district, and his province. In the 1950s, 60s, and 70s during the height of the logging and fishing era, people from all over the province who were involved in these industries, as well as many tourists from the United States and beyond were given medical care by Jack Pickup. This story is not an academic account, but rather, an account of the friendships he formed with his staff and coworkers and citizens of Alert Bay, Sointula, Port McNeill, and to some extent Port Hardy and Port Alice. He was not only a top-notch physician & surgeon, but he also served as mayor for six years and served on the Mount Waddington Regional District. Jack was a friend to many people, no matter their class or occupation. He also entertained us with his humour and his jazz piano playing. He was an integral part of the community of Alert Bay. May his memory live on in the hearts of his former patients and all those people whose lives were touched by his kindness.
